  • What's everyone running for engine management?

    I have a Greddy Emanage Ultimate. It works pretty well. I'd like to get something with more direct control and more self-adjusting functions (knock reference, etc).

    Using a JWT ecu from a B13 Sentra programmed for 9.5:1 CR, 50lb MSD injectors, and a Z32 MAF. I can get away with this since I'm using the Distributor setup from the DE -vs- the COP of the DET's. I've been using this same ECU for the past 3 years, 2 years on my sentra with good success... 254whp at 10psi with a GTiR T28 and S3 cams. Benefits of using the B13 ecu is that I now have a fan controller, since the B13's came with electric fans. I also have a Calum ECU for backup or whenever I get around to doing a few dyno runs to see the difference between the two.

      Oh, fan controller, that's neat. I'll be running a ECU with a daughterboard that Def will tune for me. Worked for my KA, should be even better on the SR. For fan control I have a Saga water temp gauge with a really flexible built-in controller- I love it.

        Haltech E8 Controls GT3076R RWD SR20DET Redtop. Plug and Play with Boost Control and currently using correction maps and launch control. Want to set up anti-lag feature soon.

          JWT ecu's are great, simple and plug and play. My other choice is Apex Power FC. easy to use and works perfect. and its not to expensive.

            I've been rom tuning my single cam ka. Between a friend and I we have 2 pocket romulators, a willems burner and a uv eraser, and I have consult wired into my stanza ecu so we can use maptrace. Seems to work pretty well

              I run a AEM EMS Honda box 1020 box thats modded for hall effect. This car had this ems in it before the 240 boxes came out. I've had my issues with aem and my own retarded mistakes. I like the aem, i've gotten pretty good with the software. i better like it, i have a another on my wifes car (s14).

              my car, 2871r .86, 740cc nismo, gm boost solenoid, gm 3 bar map, gm ait, aem wideband.

              wifes, t3t04, 480cc dechwerks (total garbage), aem map, aem boost, gm ait, aem wideband, aem serial gauge.

              Most PM answers: F 17X9 +22, R 17X9 +35

                  I use Autronic SM2 1.93 chip, w/ MSD DIS4 and MSD DIS Racing Coils. The Autronic is awesome and has never given me one problem. After building the whole car and wiring harness, the car literally started on three revoltions after priming. The support is excellent and you run the factory CAS. A true professional system for a good price. There is decent built in engine data logging and you can add inputs for Turbo Speed and 4 EGTs. I like AEM as well but we have had absolutely nothing but good luck with the 10+ autronic SM2/SM4s we have installed. If anyone is wanting to head this route with management, I can answer any wiring/mechanical questions. We buy Autronic through Franz Diebold in DC who is an excellent tuner as well if you are down in that area. Our tuner, Matt Koestner mapped my SR and he would probably answer Autronic calibration questions if there were any.

                      I'm using the SAFC-2 on the KA.
                      Currently making 260rwhp at 7psi. I'm looking into some sort of Boost timing control though too (MSD maybe?). I'll freely admit that I'm a noob when it comes to turbo engines, but since buying the S13, I'm looking to make the engine last as long as possible while boosted.

                        Shoot me a PM if you want an MSD BTM. I've also got an EManage Ultimate for sale that I'll be putting up soon (even better control over timing and fuel). Either will support up to around 14psi on the KA, but will be a PITA for anything more. My logic behind that statement is that you can only fool the ECU so much before exceeding the factory load map (and going to 100% DC on the injectors). The only way around it would be to interpolate your own MAF conversion (going to a bigger MAF or MAP sensor, of course), while not screwing the open loop portion of the map into trimming everything (effectively ruining your settings). After that, you still have to re-adjust the upper portion of the map using the injector correction.

                        Like I said... PITA.

                          Agreed.
                          The KA has SR 370s on it right now, and they're maxed out around redline. 440s would do better, but I'm not running lean right now so its not a top priority since I usually don't top 5k for that reason. I'm only looking to make 300 at the rear wheels, but that isn't going to happen any time soon.

                          I am looking into the EManage Ultimate sometime soon though. Still need to take care of numerous other little things first though. It'd be nice to switch to a MAP sensor too (GM 4 bar?) and ditch the Z32 MAF.

                          I'll PM you about the BTM shortly.

                            ROM tune is a solid option also, if you don't feel the need to tinker yourself.

                              I'm thinking about going that route. Haven't really looked into pricing or options, but I would really like to run a MAP sensor at some point and I don't know if a ROM tune will work with one.
